Al-Akhbar newspaper reported today that the Muammar Gaddafi ordered to keep Musa al-Sadr, a prominent Lebanese Shiite cleric, in a fridge at the notorious Abu Slim prison during the past decade after he died in prison from diabetes.
Lebanese sources told the newspaper that al-Sadr's body was lost after the bombing of Abu Slim, but witnesses reporting seeing his traditional cloak and black turban amid the rubble. (Did Gaddafi place him in the fridge wearing his full suit?). The new Libyan authorities located al-Sadr's guards and interrogated regarding this issue.
Apparently, Gaddafi's regime denied Sadr his much needed diabetes medicine, leading to a quick death. For unknown reasons, the Libyan dictator ordered that Sadr would be denied burial and transferred to a fridge, where it spent nearly a full decade. More details are emerging about the estimated 23,700 missing persons during Gaddafi's era in Libya.
